On October 4th first year public health and health administration students in the UNTHSC School of Public Health took a bus tour of the Las Vegas Trail Community and were asked the following questions:

“How often do you really look at your own neighborhood, or a neighborhood of others? Have you ever thought about the public health of your neighborhood? What is the public health of a neighborhood? What are the assets and challenges in a neighborhood? How does a neighborhood connect with the Social Determinants of Health? Why? What assets do you see? What challenges do you see? How would you and your group go about sharing a neighborhood’s public health story?”

After taking the bus tour- student groups worked with community and faculty facilitators to think about how they would suggest using the strengths of the community to influence areas for improvement. The first discussion in this Google Community will be about the suggestions made by student groups for Las Vegas Trail.

Please look at these ideas each student group made and let us know your thoughts. We also are welcome to any new ideas on how we can all work together to make a positive impact in all communities.

Hello everyone- welcome to our UNTHSC School of Public Health IPE community! The purpose of this community is to provide a forum for both our on-campus and online students to engage and collaborate with each other to discuss key issues that impact the health and well-being of our community. I am the co-chair of the SPH IPE Committee and work with a great group of faculty and staff to help provide students with interprofessional opportunities. My background is in college mental health and suicide prevention. I serve as the Program Director for both the Public Health Practice and Maternal and Child Health Programs. I look forward to working with everyone in this community!
